This Week's Houston Deal Sheet
Dallas-based Performance Properties is diving into the Houston multifamily market. The group's first acquisition was the 300-unit Timberwalk Apartment Homes in northwest Houston. Performance is looking to acquire 1,500 more units in Greater Houston.
"We believe Houston is just hitting the bottom of the cycle," Performance Properties principal David McQuadid said. "Our strategy is to take advantage of the perceived weak Houston economy and create the most value we can for our investors."
Performance Properties' strategy is focused around value-add units. Timberwalk has below-market average rent, at $845/month, while its neighboring complexes average $934.
